Biography

Hans Thomalla, born in Bonn, Germany, is a Chicago based composer. He is Associate Professor

of Composition at Northwestern University, where he also codirects the Institute for New Music.

His works explore the double-bind character of music as acoustic reality as well as culturally

and historically formed expression, constantly following materials transform from one form of

musical experience to the other. He has written chamber music as well as orchestral works, and

a particular focus of his activity lies in composing for the stage: his opera “Fremd” for soloists,

choir, large orchestra and electronics, was premiered at the main stage of the Stuttgart Opera in

July 2011. Hans Thomalla received degrees from the Frankfurt Musikhochschule and from

Stanford University. He has been awarded numerous awards and fellowships, among others the

Composer Prize of the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung, the Kranichsteiner Musikpreis, and the

Christoph-Delz-Prize.
